This oncstion vas debated in a hundred different place-. m -Washington last night. It is not only a t.ucstiiiii for si orts to wrangle over, but a luattei tnat the lar Jtseir tal.es cognizance of in an indirect way III-, an old saw of common law that when- a contract Is ni.'ic'c contingent tilH.n a certain event and the event is in the nature of a surprise to l-oth partiev men ti.ecc titrait Is void, m that the minds of the parties to the ci ntr..ct did rot meet or did nci. unhide the possibility of the I tuiijcci mailer or the agrecim in gelling hroa positii 11 satisfactory 101.1 ill cr party roresainple.il A lets II that Iirlawarc would go for hrjan.

So it is that upon Kcntuckv depends -whether certain gentlemen Mini! draw down their money and call liets orf or whether such wagers as have lieen men tioned shall li- won by the in-rsons taking the r.rjau end of it. Willi the press dispatches showing an Increasing McICinley majoritv for Mc Kicley in the dark and blnodv ground, the result lmiks a little dubious to the Democrats. There Is only one move I k ism hi r by which tlie Stale cnu besiued to llryan. It is proposed as a plausible method to combine the wranglo over the Campliell county precincts which went so strongly for McKmley and in which the poll lioiks were burned bv the ofrieers im mediately after counting tli- vote. If the 11ie from the Eleventh district were officially counted and .so could not he increased to coer corrections made inlhecoenl in other parts or the State, the Campbell county canvassers could then IH-oceed to throw out the irregular pre cincts aid so overcome the narrow ina Joniv by which the I'.epublicar.s hold the State. S J Roberts, chairman of the Kcpuls. lican State committee, is as foxy n poli tician as there is going, however, and re fuses to commit himself to any figures until all sources of Democratic strength have liern exhausted "Whatever may lie the result, there are Ecrtral people In 'Washington who are on the anxious scat and woold like for some thing to hnppc-u to ea,e their aching breasts. If ns was at one time stated. Kentucky divides her vote, then the whole thing will fall to the ground and ail bets in which her vote is invohed will Ik- drawn. It ie hardly likely that this will happen. As the full vrje is not yet in from South Dakota or from Wyoming, .-my change in Hoc State-s from the posltion'into which prlxiabilitics have placed them will change the wluJe matter and cause the Repub licans to win all bets upon the majority or States.

In the Judgment of tlie coinuattcu, Mild cxjiositliHi would not be lcusimc. for reasons set rorth 111 the committee's report. UltlDUES.

'ihe committee urges that mil lid action lie taken tu secure tue passage ol ihlH bill. The prewspect of securing a bridge across Rock creek .011 Massachusetts :ienue ex tendisl Is stated as gooel, as it is under stood the lhstrict Commissioners will rec ommend, in their annual report, the con struction or such a bridge.

The committee note with gratification Ihat in each and every case involving the the question as lo the title lo certain laud 111 litigation, part or which was induced in the ic-t l.itmed Potomac Flats, tlie decisiun was in ravor or the United States. Persistent efrort was made lo have the reclaimed flats set apart for a national park, but u provisiuii ior tills purpose was uurorliinalely slricken out or the District appropriation bill. A recommendation Is also maile to the eirect Midi us .soon as ttie stale 01 the na tional rinauces will permit an appropria tion tie asked for the purc-na.-; 01 tlie six teen acres or land immediately adjoining Oak Hill Cemetery on the west for use as a public park, more especially for the citi zens or Georgetown and all the western IHiruou or ine city. I'UDLIC HEALTH This committee renews its recommenda tion of list 3 ear, except so fur nt-rclutcs to the cnattinc-nt or a iaw to regulate tue practice ot medicine in the District or Co lumbia and the ubtninmcul or charters under tlie gi-ncral Incorporation law nut hor Izmg mcdicnrschools and societies to t-suu diplomas and license to practice medicine In mis uismci, us such e-xccpiMiiis nae already lieen covered by act or Congress. The exten-ion or tliessieiii of sewerage and completion and purification of the sup pl or drinking water demand imperative ami immediate attention. The ciitiimiitc-c expresses the liellef that proper eirorts on the part of the orrioors and committees of the board of trade would iKcompltsh satisfactory progress toward tne completion ot ihe sjstem of sewage disixisal and of theexlen-lon and purifica tion of the water supply. PUULIC SCHOOLS. The committee on public scliools make a most Interesting rciiort and after personal examination commend luglilv the- geueral good character of the school buildings and their appointments; speak in praise of the evident mieresi 111 tbe-ir Work bv the teachers, and make special mention of the progress made by both bovs and girls In liiiiustrial education, wuiu iim tew hours each Week devoted 10 it, and with the lim ited facilities at command, and close by suggesting ihat money could not be spent to better advantage than by erecting a building specially devoted lo Ihe higher grades of industrial education. RAILROADS. The committee on railroads report that, alter several interviews with the railroad engineers and the Commissioners, they round that tlie whole matter se-emed to lunge on the depth ot the cut between Slxtti street and the tunnel, the railroad company declining to go below ten feet below uatum at Delaware avenue, which would bring the roadbed just on top of the present arcti or the sewer near South Capitol street. ine Engineer Commissioner, after care rul consideration or the subject, was unable to agree to tltiB line or grade and holds that ir the -railroad company deems it im practicable to depress their tracks tolie deptn or four feci, above the designated datum, no other solution or the problem remains than for the companv to adopt the system of track elevation within the city limits. In regard to thelialtimore and OliIoRall load, they report that, the text or their conference and discussion has been the Senate bill, which provides Tor two via ducts ror bringing their tracks into the city. The conunlitee, tlie District Com missioners, and the Northeast Association all unite in opposing this, and' believe ono track or viaduct is amply sufficient and here the mailer rests at present. We regret ttie disagreement between the Pennsylvania Railroad and the District Commissioners and board or trade com mittee on Ihe question as to elevation or depression or the tracks in South Wash ington. K the Commissioners are correct In their claim that It would be fatal to tile future weir.ire or the city to consent to a settlement or the question by a partial depression, as it would seem tlievare; and ir on the other hand, a serious injustice would seem to be done theiallrcad com pany by compelling them to go to an un leasonable expense to elevate tho tracks It would seem to be just that a part or the expense should be liorne bv the District in view or the great benefits to be derived, lliis course has been Tollowed in Philadel phia and Iluffalo, and would undoubtedly prove or great value to Washington. PUBLIC BUILDINGS. The time has now arrived, in the Judg ment or the committee, when the bouru of trade should co-operate with the people or the District 111 general, to secure an an propriatiou for the erection of a building on Judiciary Square forthe accommodat-on or t l.ecourts or the Districtand all municipal oriXis. It Is thought that in the near fu ture. y. appropriation can Le obtained with which to begin the erection of the new building. Tliecornmltteelsunanimousintheoninton that the site now occupied by the city hall 011 Judiciary Square, should be selected for the proposed building, or In reality for two separate adjoining buildlngR, to con. blitute architecturally one building, ono part for the courts and the otter for the municipality, the total cost thereof not to exceedtwoand a hairmilliondollars The site mentioned Is LcIlcTca' by the committee tobe the choice or thcpeople of theDistnct Tliecotninlitce renews itsrccommendation that various efforts should he made to se cure an appropriation for the Anacostia river, from tlie Navy Yard Bridge to Ulesboro Point, sufficiently large to bring It up and Into the general improvement pro ject.

In tlie early part fir January, lSOO.tho subject lor the neee-ssity ror an adequate i)s.eiii or sewage disposal was con-sidere-d with great care. Shortly after waid ,1 special cotumlltee wus appointed in consider ihe subject re-ceimmended, that t he so-called sewer bond LIU he amended so as 10 provide for sewage disposal and pro tection against floods. Somewhat later Ihls, committee prepared and had intro duced Into both houses or Congress, a new lull, authorizing the issue of a per cmt flr.y year bonds to the amount ot 53, OOO.OUO r6r that "purpose, which met with general favor, and wus to l.e aggressively supported, but was alandoned for that session ol Congress, In the hopes that the subject of street cxte-nsion would be definitely settled before the commence ment or Ihe next session. The futilitv or iitteitiiiune the comple tion or the system or sewerage dlsosal recommended by the board of sanitary engineers Is shown by annual appropria tions. In the opinion ot the cotnmulce, oy the ract tli.it the entire appropriation ror this purpose for the past seven eam has been but SaTS.OHO, while the const ruction of the entire system will require $3,598, OOa.L'O, mill, at the above rate, a period of sixty years. STREETS AND AVENUES. The !iok: Is expn-ssed that CougretS will enact such legislation as will render opera tive the street extension net law, and, In Ihe Judgment or the committee, the in fluence of the hoard or trade, should be exerted toward obtaining such legislation. Ihe .statement Is made mat the appropria tions made by Congress at its last session for paving, grading and repairing stieets are being expended by the District Com missioners with beneficial results. COMMITTEE ON TAXATION AND AB- 8ESSMENT., It Is a matter'or Interest and 'eif credit to the board or trade that the ac-ssmcul recently made, ou which the taxes are now being paid, and which assessment.

Dr. McGrevv, assistant rector ot St. Bartholomew's Church, New Yoik, is expected to visit Washington during tte latter part or this week as the guest tf Dr. Mackay-Sinith, rector of St. John's Church. It Is understood that Dr. McGrew will preach a sermon on Friday nigbt at St. John's. Dr. McGrew is by no means a stranger to this city. He is a convert to the Episcopal faith from that or the Methodists, and while in the latter church ranked high both as a scholar and as a pulpit orator. He was at one time spoken or ib the successor or Dr. Newman, at" Metro IKilitan M. E. Church. His intention, how ever, lo become a member or the Episcopal clergy put that out or the question, al though he was. In the opinion or .1 great many, to succeed the venerable Bishop Newman at the Metropolitan Church. As is well-known the rectorship of Tnnltv Churcli has not yell ecn'rilled, the Invitation to Dr. Mackay-Smlth having been declln.-d hythatclergyinanforrensonsalroady stated. The coming or J)r. McGrevv Is a specially, interesting event, inasmuch as, while there has been no publication or the fact, he has been spoken of bv the congregation and by the vestry unofficially as a most desirable rector Tor TrllHt?. ' It may possibly occur that an Invitatlo.i' may be extended to him to accept this 'place. The posi(lon he now holds isoneof great importance and of rtnancial value but there are '-Mindy occasions when th"se considerations dtf'not enter into the move ments or thc'clergy, which always arc, however, with the consent of tlic'blthon of the dlocesi,u! . . 1 INFANT MURDER AGAIN.

Favorable Opinion W'lll.Oliea tho Field to Competition. Argument In the famous case ot tho United States vs. the American Hell Tel ephone, a suit 10 ca'ncel iivu patent :ned to Knill Berliner fora transmitter, ami upon the icsulu 01 which nepenus tne continu ance or the telephone, monopoly or the United States, was begun in the Tinned Stales Supreme "Court yesterday arternnon by Mr. K. h. Taylor on M-tiuii ut :uu gov ernment, lie will be followed by Mr. Josti.ii II. Lhoaie 01 Ncn lorie tor tin: Bell Company, and Mr. Caustin Urovvno will close ror the government. Before the case was called Mr. Browne, on behuir or all counsel, asked an increase or the time usually allotted tor argument in a case rour hours 10 twelve hours, but the court limited ltto tlie remainderof the day's session then remaining, one hour, and all of Tuesday's -and Wednesday's; nine hours in all. ' Mr. J. J. McNaught, counsel for the Standard Telephone Company, uuavatl lngly pleaded for an hour In whbli to present some views favorable to the contention ot the United Slates. GROUND OF THE SUIIT. The litigation was begun by direction of Attnmey General Miller near the close of President Harrison's administration, and had its origin in a suggestion made by Mr. Charles II. Amrirh, ineii ihe Solicitor Gen eral of the United States. 'ine rajls are siau-u in the brief filed by .Mr. Aldncli, who was specially charged vvjtli its preparation arter his retirement from office. He says that an examina tion be made as to the validity of the Berliner patent, because of his discoveries while acting as attorney ror Milo G. Kel logg, before holding off icml position. In un action against the Bell 'i clepmuic Com pany. The recommendation was referred to tlie commissioner of patents, who re turned it with an agreement to show that a suit to cancel the patent would be 1111 Justifiable. That argument was deemed Insufficient by President Harrison, to whose attention tlie mutter Had been brought. and Attorney General Miller, and after the investigation suggested by Sir. Aldnch had lieen made, suit to cancel the patent was begun No vember 17. 1691, in the' United States circuit court, for. the district of Massa chusetts. Messrs. R. S. Taylor, of Fort Wayne, Ind.. and Causten Browne, of llos ton. appearing for the government as special assistants to the attorney general. IN THE LOWER COURTS. Judge Carpenter, on January 3, 1695, touud ror the plaintiff and decreed a cancellation or the patent. The Bell Com pany took the case lo the court of-i'p-peals ror the First circuit, v. filch, on June 14. 1&95. in an opinion read by Judge i-uinam tor ntmseir and Judges Colt and Nelson, reversed the circuit court, with instructions to dismiss the bill. From tlmt decree the United Slates appealed to the supreme court ot the United State3. The principal ground upon which the government asked the cancellation of the patent, as shown by the briefs, was the ex traordinary delay in Itsissue by the Patent Office, which, it was claimed, was in ef rcct a rraud iqion the pul lie. Berliner's original appllcatlon-for a transmitter was nicd June 4. lSTTin 167S the applica tion came into possession and under the control or tlie Bell Company; and the patent was not grantisl unlll in November, 161 , ihus extending for a period of seven teen je'ars from the latter date the monopoly or telephonic transmission secured by the Issue or Ihe original 1V11 patent In ldTG, or a total period or thirty-two years. GOVERNMENT'S CONTENTION. Bjt counsel ror the government urged the cancellation uiuii the additional grounds: 1. That a patent issued to Berhner in lf&O covered ihe same invention as that covered by the invention in suit. 2. That the patent was not fur th- unic Invention described in the apiilicatiou as hied. 3. That, taking tlie application to date from the time when it was made byani-nd-inent to cover the invention desinbtil and claimed in tlie patent as issued, it was liorrowed by previous public use for a period of more than two jesrs. Much Intel est is taken in the case, es pecially by companies desirous or entering the telephone Held, and besides the lit erature furnished by the attorneys ftr the pjrtjes or record, two briefs, by per mission of the court, were submitted bv McNaught & Redding, solicitors Jf the Standard Telephone Company, in support of the position of tlie United States. Their briers discussed the proiKitlj.is: 1. That the Berliner transmitter patent was void, because patents covering the same had been issued in foreign countries to Berliner, Edison, and Blake, and h;,d expired before the issuing of the Berliner patent. 2. That the novelty In the Berliner patent (ir any) was in the mechanical adjustment or the electrodes and not. as claimed, by counsel for the Bell Company, In its mode or operation and the electrical principles employed. HOTO LOCKED TJP, John nnd Susie IJaysi Practiced Profanity on tlie Street. John and Susie Haves, husband and wife quarreled near the Kl street market last evening and nearly came to blows.
